Yes. There are three reasons why your Slim PS2 disc might not spin.

1. Bad laser. This is the most common issue.
2. Bad case: if your PS2 dropped or is banged around a lot, the case could become loosely closed and even though it is closed, the PS2 thinks it is still open.
3. Bad sensor(s): The PS2 has 2 sensors to let it know that the lid is closed. Once the lid is closed, the laser does its thing.

I can hear the motor spinning but the disk doesn't spin can anyone help


spinner isnt spinning as it should. make sure that there is no short circuiting in your ps2, as this would make some of your parts of the ps2 mess up.

Unknow Disk - Please check disk again ERROR MESSAGE. Have tried previous burn disks the work no problems in the DVD player..... BUT disks I have burn as of today keep coming up with the above error...


The problem is you need to replace the laser assembly if the disc is spinning and not being read, or if the disc isnt spinning, you need to replace the mpeg printed circuit board attached to the laser assembly. Good Luck.

My 360 disk drive isnt sppining the disk.


Dash,

When the drive stops spinning the disk the drive is dead and needs to be replaced.

If your product is in warranty, make contact with the manufacturer and request a replacement product. If not, you'll need to purchase a replacement drive.

Sorry man.

Won't work. disk won't turn


sounds like a faulty spindle. this is the part that spins your cd for the laser to read. if your using a fat ps2 its prolly the spindle. if your using a slim ps2 it could be the laser causing the problem not the spindle. the slim ps2 laser make the spindle work. if the laser isnt working right the cd might not spin or it might not spin fast enough or flat enough.

Laptop dvd drive wont recognise.


Sounds like a bad cdrom drive. If it isnt even being picked up in the bios (cmos), then it'll never show in windows. If reseating the drive doesn't work, just replace it with a known good one. Unless there is damage to the plug inside, that should solve it.
